Chelsea to end interest in Hulk

Chelsea are set to end their interest in Porto striker Hulk, after reports that PSG are ready to enter the race to sign the striker.

According to ClubCall, the Portuguese champions are aiming to start a bidding war for their star striker with the French runners-up prepared to spend big to get the player.

However, this has put the European champions off the 25-year-old as they don’t wish to enter a bidding war and end up paying an excessive amount. The Blues were primed to pay over £30 million for Hulk, but Porto are said to be holding out for £38 million and reports last week suggested that PSG were prepared to offer £43 million to secure a deal.

The Brazilian has already admitted that he would welcome the opportunity to play for the West London side, but it seems now Roberto Di Matteo and his chiefs will be turning their attention to a more affordable option – Demba Ba and Salomon Rondon are thought to be in their sights.
